Missionary Photography in Korea: Encountering the West through Christianity, by Donald N. Clark

A 2009 exhibition by the Korea Society in New York of missionary photography from the late 19th century reveals a period of change in the previously isolated nation. Along with a solid historical narrative, rare photographic images of the early days of Western Christian influence show a unique slice of Korean life in that era, and of missionary life in Korea.
